Let's have a thread on Republican election fraud

Postby Symmetry on Wed Oct 31, 2012 5:50 pm

I give you Strategic Allied Consulting, until recently, an RNC and Romney contractor.

A GOP-backed consulting firm may have submitted "hundreds" of faked voter registration forms in Florida, according to the Florida Department of State.

The GOP cut ties with the third party voter registering company Strategic Allied Consultants on Thursday after the Palm Beach County elections supervisor flagged 106 of the firm's registration forms for having similar handwriting, incorrect addresses and incomplete information.

Since then, elections officials in nine Florida counties have unearthed hundreds of possibly fraudulent registration forms.

Chris Cate, a spokesman for the Florida Department of State, said the state does not yet know the exactly how many forms were allegedly faked. While it is not unusual to get reports of incomplete registration cards, Cate said it is rare for the state to have so many forms with false or wrong information.

"We are concerned about any cases of voter fraud," Cate said. "In this case, it has to do with most allegations regarding bad information on voter applications. We don't know the extent of how it could impact election, but we will let the Florida Department of Law Enforcement determine full extent of the problem."

Strategic Allied Consultants claims the issue stemmed from one employee, who was fired on Sept. 15, but county election officials claim the fraud was more widespread, stretching across counties that are more than 500 miles apart.

"I don't subscribe to the theory that this was the action of one single individual who was able to get into more than half a dozen counties from one end of Florida to the other," said Paul Lux, the Okaloosa County Election Supervisor.

Lux said that out of 2,200 forms that Strategic Allied workers submitted, he and his staff have found about three dozen that appear to be faked. Some have signatures that do not match the names; others are only partially completed and a handful of forms have addresses that do not exist, he said.

See, this is why the Republican Party wants Voter ID...so they can cut down on Republican election fraud.

(I'm serious...I actually believe this is their strategy, as I've mentioned previously in a different thread.)

I don't know- some of the stuff they're accused of seems way worse than anything ACORN did- going out and registering voters, then binning anyone who might vote Dem. They received a lot of money for their services over the years. $3.1 million in 2012 from the RNC.

'Tis always a possibility. I may have just wanted to add that link.

Of course, I fully expect the usual suspects to condemn this more serious example of fraud in even stronger terms than those they reserve for ACORN.

It will likely go ignored. I've lost the will for incendiary tactics when making threads. Perhaps the thread will serve as a reminder that conservative posters don't actually care about election fraud, they just don't want minorities to vote.

Wait, he doesn't think that one guy could've faked 36 papers?

And 82 counties... sure, but is the information centralized? One guy with access to a database can easily forge 36 papers.

Daily Kos wrote:Several voters in Florida got an unwelcome surprise in their mailboxes recently--official-looking letters saying that they may not be eligible to vote. There's one problem--they aren't real. Voters in at least 23 counties have gotten these letters. Most of them are registered Republicans. For instance, nine voters in Brevard, Osceola, Orange and Seminole counties in central Florida have gotten these letters--and all of them are Republicans. Since the letters were postmarked from Seattle, both the FBI and state officials are investigating.

What do you mean? If you mean state issued voter ID cards, then no. It seems like a poor solution to a virtually non-existent problem.

I'm certainly against the RNC hiring people to register voters and then binning people who lean towards the Dems.
